What is the Scarborough Gift Card?

We have partnered with North Yorkshire LEP. Scarborough Borough Council and The Brunswick Shopping Centre fund a gift card scheme for Scarborough for the next three years.

Towns and cities throughout the UK use gift card schemes to lock in localised spend to support local businesses, and now more than ever, it is paramount that we do everything we can.

The gift card is being phased to ensure that the town centre area is saturated before expanding to the periphery areas. Still, we are urging all BID businesses to complete the sign up below.

You don’t need any other equipment other than your normal PDQ machine, and no fees are passed onto you.  

Residents and visitors can purchase a gift card online or from The Brunswick from a card dispensing machine and then spend their cards in the participating businesses.  

So long as you take card payments, you can take part.

To date, nearly £50,000 worth of cards have been purchased; make sure you are one of the locations that this can be spent in by signing up below.  👇

Investment over 3 years:  £20,000
